Well, November is nearly upon us! For those of you who don't know, starting November first I will be embarking on a month long journey of insanity and bravery for the third time in three years. Yes, it's NaNoWriMo time again, ladies and gentlemen!
What is NaNoWriMo, you may be asking yourselves? NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month. Each November thousands of people from around the world come together with the common goal of writing a 50,000 novel. (That's one each person, not one they all work on together, mind you.)
I first participated in 2008 - when I managed to finish with a couple days to spare. The book was absolutely terrible, though. Don't get me wrong! I liked it the, and spent over a year revising it. But at the end of that year I realized that the story had a lot of messages in it that I didn't like, and no longer agreed with.
Last year I tried again - and barely got to 25,000 words. That was not a great month for me. *sighs*
This year, however, will be the oddest yet, as I am no longer willing to give up everything else for NaNoWriMo. I am still going to have fun with my family, I am still going to have fun with my big sister at night, and I am still going to blog. If my novel suffers, so be it! Writing is no longer the center of my universe, and I like it that way! :D
So, is anyone else reading this planning on doing NaNoWriMo?
